Eisen's Mailbag: OC Kevin Gilbride




Today's edition of The Mailbag on

I asked you when will the Giants wise up and get rid of Kevin Gilbride.

I occasionally get letters from fans dissatisfied with our offensive coordinator, Kevin Gilbride, and my response is always something along the line of, "Are you kidding me?" Gilbride is one of the most respected offensive coaches in the NFL. You may disagree with some of his calls or the offense's performance in a specific game, but look at the man's body of work. With Gilbride designing game plans and calling plays, the Giants have won two of the last five Super Bowls. Gilbride has been one of the most important figures in the development of Eli Manning, who is one of the NFL's very best quarterbacks. Last year, the Giants set a franchise record with 6,161 yards. That was with a rushing attack that struggled all season, which means the offense rode on the arm of Manning, the quarterback Gilbride helped mold. Manning's 4,933 yards were the sixth-highest total in NFL history. I could go on and on. Fans calling for Kevin Gilbride to be replaced are just wrong.
